  1. result

    Effect is the strongest of these words; it is that which is directly produced by the action of an efficient cause; we say, "Every effect must have an adequate cause" (compare CAUSE). In regard to human actions, effect commonly relates to intention; as, the shot took effect, i. e., the effect intended. A consequence is that which follows an act naturally, but less directly than the effect. The motion of the piston is the effect, and the agitation of the water under the paddle-wheels a consequence of the expansion of steam in the cylinder. The result is, literally, the rebound of an act, depending on many elements; the issue is that which flows forth directly; we say the issue of a battle, the result of a campaign. A consequent commonly is that which follows simply in order of time, or by logical inference. The end is the actual outcome without determination of its relation to what has gone before; it is ordinarily viewed as either the necessary, natural, or logical outcome, any effect, consequence, or result being termed an end; as, the end of such a course must be ruin. The event (Latin e, out, and venio, come) is primarily exactly the same in meaning as outcome; but in use it is more nearly equivalent to upshot signifying the sum and substance of all effects, consequences, and results of a course of action. Compare ACCIDENT; CAUSE; CIRCUMSTANCE; END; EVENT.

    You would think that a 6 percent China move amid the recent currency adjustments would have netted a more negative result, when we approach downside sell-offs the market is bending but not breaking and when we get towards the upper end of the range there is not enough to push it through, so it's been a rubber band kind of mentality.

  3. RAMANA PEMMARAJU:

  4. Nathaniel Fields:

    Pets are members of the family and no one, especially victims of domestic violence, should have to make the impossible decision to leave their pets behind during times of crisis, in working with victims of domestic violence, URI identified a great need for domestic violence shelters that accept animals. As a result, URI developed the only program in New York City, and one of the few nationally, that allows victims of domestic violence and their families to co-shelter with their pets. It is our hope that thePALSprogram will serve as a model for sheltering families with their pets nationwide.

  5. Gustavo Petro:
